1. Object of data protection
The subject of data protection is personal data within the meaning of Section 3 (1) BDSG, which refers to individual details about personal or material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person and according to Article 4 GDPR all information relating to an identified or identifiable person. The term personal data includes information such as names, addresses, email addresses or phone numbers, but also usage data such as your IP address or content data, for example, a cover letter or CV you have created.


2. Scope and purposes of data processing
Except for processing the IP address of the computer you are currently using, you can generally use the website without having to provide any personal data. 

If you send us an email, we will of course also receive personal data from you. Read more below.

2.1. Processing of the IP address
It is absolutely necessary to process your IP address in order to use the website and deliver our website’s data packages to you. Both the web server and your Internet device have an IP address and contact each other via this address to provide each other with data. You can see the website and we are provided with the data you enter. 

Your IP address will be saved by us for the transmission of pages and stored in the log files. We cannot draw any direct conclusions about your identity from the processing of the IP address and other information in the log file.

The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests are to ensure proper operation as well as troubleshooting and tracking of IT security breaches.


2.2. Inquiries per email
If you contact us by email, we use the data contained therein only to answer your inquiry. 

The legal basis for this data processing is regularly Article 6 (1) b) GDPR. 


2.3. Cookies
We use a few cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that a website stores on the computer of a website visitor, in other words, they get stored locally. Cookies facilitate the use of the website. 

To find out what cookies we use exactly, click in your browser software on settings, possibly other settings, and then content settings and/or cookie management (each browser software has a slightly different menu).

You can prevent the installation of cookies by disallowing the installation of cookies. Select the appropriate setting in the browser software for this purpose (under Settings for most browsers). In this case, you may not be able to fully use all functions of our website.


2.4. Use of data, transmission of data for specific purposes
We strictly observe the principle of data usage for specific purposes. All the above-mentioned data is processed only for the purposes stated in this information document on data processing.

2.5. Web analytics service Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). Pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies (see section 2.3) are used in this context. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and time of server request are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google complies with the Privacy Policy of the US Privacy Shield and is registered with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s US Privacy Shield Program. In addition, we have concluded a data processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics. Through this contract, Google undertakes that it will process the data in accordance with the GDPR and guarantees the protection of the rights of the data subject.

The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage for the purposes of market research and tailor-made website design.

This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on a contractual basis. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other of Google’s data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the browser software settings accordingly. We point out, however, that in this case not all features of this website may be fully usable.

In addition, you may prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on.

An opt-out cookie will then be installed to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you have to reinstall the opt-out cookies.
